Here’s your Monday smile – it’s limerick time. Send in your own or here’s a prompt for you –
Here are a few limericks to make you smile this Monday. The prompt last week was FAME.
Some ministers may be quite lame,
But it isn’t just they who’re to blame.
Their confidence beaten
By four years in Eton,
They now craves their moment of fame.
Fame, I’m going to live forever
You should remember my name
I almost got a world record
In eating mince pies abroad
OK I guess that’s really lame!
The boy, he went out of his mind
Due to fame, of the infamous kind
Tiktok video went viral
Now he’s in denial
And all cos he didn’t want to get left behind.
If you found fame
Nothing would be the same
You might get a big heed
Certain friends you wouldn’t need
You might even change your name!
There once was a woman of fame
Who walked with a limp; kinda lame
She went to the doc
And for a pretty buck
He repaired it and now she’s the same!
There once was a man who did claim,
That he’d reached heights of fortune and fame.
He wasn’t on T.V. or Radio.
Silver Screen was just a no, go.
Turned out he’s a pantomine Dame.
Linking People 2003:
Writing is one of the easiest ways to fame.
But, it’s not so easy game,
Without learning and perfecting the art.
Have to be smart.
So, pen down something today to aim.
Modelling was his chance to fame
Been at it like a moth to a flame.
Spent a fortune for his debut
But on D-day his dream feel through;
The mother of all zits sabotaged his acclaim!
Do you suppose I seek Janus-faced fame
Bright-lights-and-banners’ mercurial acclaim
No, I don’t need the wow-crowds pressure
Why strive for unsteady gig, a soul-thresher…
In Lamb’s Book of Life, God already penned my name.
